In memoriam Bruno Nettl
(14 March 1930 – 15 January 2020)
With Bruno Nettl’s passing on 15 January this year, the world of ethnomusicology lost one of its major figures, a scholar who significantly contributed to its affirmation as an academic field worldwide, and who inspired and kept supporting generations of ethnomusicologists on their way to new heights. His lectures at the University of Ljubljana’s Faculty of Arts in 2007 raised lots of interest among the professors and students; at that occasion, he presented the Department of Musicology his collection of abstracts. Musicological Annual lost a respected member of its International Advisory Board and the author of the article “What Are the Great Discoveries of Your Field? Informal Comments About the Contributions of Ethnomusicology,” published in 2015. Nettl’s crossdisciplinary scholarship provides a broad and multi-layered picture of both selected musics and of ethnomusicology as a discipline.
